Y6 - Miss Stupples 2019 - 2020

Miss Stupples

Welcome

My name is Miss Stupples and I teach Year 6 along with Mr Ray, who supports our class. I have been a member of the teaching staff at Northway since 2011. Before this, I taught at another school in Sefton in both Infants and Upper Juniors. I also completed a Masters degree in Creative Education whilst teaching there. As well as teaching Year 6, I am also responsible for leading English across the school.  Northway has always been a special place to me as I attended this school myself! It has gone from strength to strength over the years and it has always had the children's well-being at the centre of every decision.

Home Learning Week Beginning 6th July

 

Parents

Below are a range of resources designed for parents to help support both you and your child with the transition to high school and important areas of the science and PSHE curriculum.

If you haven't confirmed your child's attendance to the Leavers' Celebration on Friday 17th July, please do so, as as soon as possible, by email to year6@northwayprimary.co.uk. We need confirmation even if your child is currently attending school.

 

Year 6 Leavers

Thank you to everyone who emailed in photos and videos for our Leavers' Celebration!

This week, we are asking that you film yourself doing a TikTok dance (Please keep the video to under 20 seconds). This is only if you want to! Please send these to year6@northwayprimary.co.uk by Thursday 9th July. Unfortunately, anything received after this date will not be included.

 

If you are attending the Leavers' Celebration, you will need to make a tag which you will attach to your balloon. This should be made from a small piece of paper or card and have a hole punched in it (so you can attach it to a balloon). On this, you can write your hopes and dreams for the future and decorate it however you wish. Please bring this tag to the Leavers' Celebration on Friday 17th July- we do not need it sent into school before this.

 

Year 6 Transition

 

Moving to high school is a big change in your life and it is normal that you will have mixed feelings about it.

For the next two weeks, there are PowerPoints and a booklet for you to work through which have lots of advice and activities designed to prepare you for the transition to high school. See below for ‘Be Awesome, Go Big!’ resources.

 

Have a look at the transition information and activities provided by the high school you will be attending.

ENGLISH

Writing:

Teacher Feedback Task: Write/type up your report and send it to year6@northwayprimary.co.uk if you would like teacher feedback.

This week, you will be writing a report.

Look at the genre features checklist or WAGOLL (What a good one looks like) to remind youself what should be included in your piece. You can choose any topic that interests you or link it to this week’s learning in the other subjects.

  • Remember, we first plan the structure and content (words or phrases to include).
  • After we write, we edit basics such as spelling and punctuation and then improve the sentence or overall structure of the text.
  • Finally, you can copy it up neatly to practise your handwriting.

 

Reading Comprehension:

Year 6 Women’s Football

All About Garden Birds Comprehension

  • Remember, read the text first and text mark as you go (a few words to remind you what each paragraph is about and underline any words which you are unsure about).
  • When you read the questions, underline the key words and then scan for them in the text to find the answer (your text marking will help you locate the part you need rather then re-reading the whole text every time).
  • For longer questions, make sure you write a pint and the evidence to back it up.
  • After you have written your answer, make sure you read the question and answer together to ensure it matches.
  • Don’t forget to copy accurately from the text.

 

SPAG: Complete the SPaG Mat to recap Year 6 objectives (answers are attached).  Remember, you can use your Year 6 SPaG Revision Guide or the BBC Bitesize website to support you with any concepts you find tricky!

Year 6 Guided Grammar PowerPoint. Work through this by reading and completing each slide. This is an interactive PowerPoint so you will need to complete it on a device rather than printing it out.

 

Spelling:

This week, you will look at synonyms and antonyms.

Keep learning and revising all the Y5 and 6 Words. These are attached below and there is an activity to go with them each week.

Use the rest of your Read Write Inc book to complete the activities that we usually do together.
